Currently working in maplins part time. But my last job was about two years ago. Gave them my P45 about 5 months back as they kept taxing me a **** rate at BR. But my manager said something like they cant use it cause its over a year old or something. Is this true? Frankly im extremely annoyed cause they are taxing me stupid amounts and im planning to just have a big argument with the manager tomm about it all

A p45 is for a tax calendar year, april to april so he is right
Have you been in receipt of benefits? I ask this, cos when you "signed off" you'd receive a new P45

You will need to write a letter to your tax office letting them know who you worked for in the last financial year and how much you were paid. Then request additional allowance such as the uniform allowance (if you have to wear one) and subscription allowance if your job has one... After that they will send you a refund.

If its for this finanical year then ring tax office. make sure your full tax allowance is on your current job. They probably think your still working at both jobs and have your full allowance for that.... But since your paying more tax than your supposed to just think about the people your helping out without jobs.. doesnt it make you feel all warm inside:giggle:

Well i can still have a rant at my manager, as he said i have to fill out a P46 which he said he would give to me, which he hasnt. Im still pretty pissed as im getting paid the equivalent of having another day off a week. So im basically doing all those hours for free at the moment.

So i have to call the tax office and they will refund me straight away? Or knowing them it will at least take some time. I know i can claim back some of my taxes though thats later on. Thing is i shouldnt be getting taxed at all as im a student and im working the minimum required hours. But my tax code is BR and has been that for a while

Sorting your tax out is part of a WORKING life.
If your overpaid you will get it all back.

Ranting at managers is not a good way to get things done, in fact if someone had a go at me I would do my best to make things harder.

If you didn't give your new employer a P45 then they should have got you to sign a P46 straight away.

This wouldn't help your tax situation as you would still have been on BR but after 5 months they should have received notice from the tax office of your correct coding & you would get your tax back through your pay from your employer.

Get your P46 signed straight away and get onto your tax office & you should be in time to get your tax back in this financial year.

The main reason why im annoyed is that i gave them my P45 and they said thats fine we will sort it. So about 4-5 months in the job i noticed my tax code was BR and i asked the manager whats going on about it? He contacted the payroll person and she said the P45 was not okay. It angered me that they never once told me about the P45 situation even though my manager said he would sort it out. I only found out about it once i enquired into it even further, which seemed to have taken them ages to do as well. Spoke to my manager today and he gave me a P46 and said fill it out and hand it back in, but that means i wont get a decent salary until my next paycheck which is quite a while away.

Don't hold your breath on that one, HMRC are notoriously slow at these type of things. I've seen some of our employees wait 3 months.

Don't be too hard on your manager, they can only BR you for tax until they get word from HMRC on a new tax code, after all they have no idea how many jobs you have.

My Oh is having a similar problem, he just started work after having been unemployed since graduating. For 2 months he was paying 1/3 of all his income in tax as he was waiting for his P45, he handed it in last week so we need to see if it's been sorted out for this month's wage or not. you will get it all back once Inland Revenue have processed it, and it will all come back to you with your salary, not separately, provided it is sorted out this tax year - and it should be, they're slow but not that slow!
